How to make a whimsical Italian-style pizza . I’ve always liked the name of this whimsical or whimsical pizza. It made me imagine the ingredients of his recipe as a whim, either because anything goes to make this pizza or because it is so good that it is, a whim for the palate. I think the best option is the second one, because it really is impressive, from the preparation of the homemade pizza dough to the detailed preparation of all its ingredients.

Beyond the traditional Neapolitan margarita pizza , this is one of the most classic preparations along with the four cheese and four seasons pizza. It is a pizza with a multitude of ingredients, something rare in the typical Italian types of pizza, where they are usually simple and tasty preparations but without requiring a large number of products. In this pizza we will find olives, anchovies, artichokes, mushrooms, basil and egg, in addition to the ubiquitous mozzarella cheese and crushed tomato as a base.

The combination of such a variety of flavors and textures make this really a whimsical and surprising pizza. In egg, which we will place in the last minutes of its preparation so that the white simply curdles and keeps the yolk liquid, it will serve as a union and perfect combination with the rest of flavors, quite a luxury.
